Richard Branson anti gay law in nigeria

Dec 5, 2011 – Richard Branson Opposes The New Anti-Gay Law in Nigeria

British Billionaire, Richard Branson who has a few investments in Nigeria, published the message below on his blog today.

Nigeria’s cruel anti-gay law – Richard Branson
Too sad to comprehend that Nigeria are passing a law in this day and age to put gay people in prison just for being gay.

The Prohibition of Same-Sex Marriage Bill passed through Nigeria’s Senate unopposed last week. It means gay couples entering into either marriage or cohabitation will be jailed for up to 14 years. Even people “witnessing” or “abetting” gay relationships could be punished under this sad, repressive and cruel law.

Like everyone else in society, gay people have an enormous amount to offer and Nigeria should embrace them not prosecute them.

All of us with influence in Nigeria must do what we can to stop this cruel law.

I would urge educated Nigerians all over the world to do what they can to help fight this discrimination.

    These man is stupid, if we had a gay and lesbian world before now, will he be born to come and be a billionaire now? His speech is because he might probably be one of them, who believe there is no God.

    Homosex…& lesb shld be general seen as abnormality nd aberration. Yet society shld use non-violence approach in tackling the problem.
